You would need some servers side code such as Coldfusion, PHP or ASP to perform the email and catch all of the submitted form variables.

you could give the <form> an action of mailto:youremail@email.com but that literally pops up the users default email client e.g. outlook and wouldn't necessarily email you (i.e. they could stop the process).
